This poster explores the value of criminal paraphernalia as it pertains to use for education, the conservation of historical heritage, and memorializing victims. By investigating the Crime Museum of London and two highly published cases the evolution of crime prevention and investigation can be learned as well as historical and cultural value. Lastly, the social fascination of crime drama is also explored.
This post refers to coursework done for ARCLG141 (2015-16), one of the core courses of the UCL MA Principles of Conservation.
As part of their assessed work for this course, students were asked to design and produce a poster communicating specific aspects of conservation. We hope you enjoy our work! Comments are most welcome.
